Debriefing chapter 7
We asked questions a few weeks back, and you wives had LOTS to say.
We are saddened by the response - that many of you had the desire to go to church, be in a fellowship community, read the Bible and pray with your law enforcement officer- but it seemed that many are resistant to walking into that world of faith with you.
You’re not alone. This is quite common among officers, however, we believe the year 2020 had many of them scratching their heads, wondering what the heck was happening, knowing they couldn’t figure it out on their own.
The impact of the rioting, the division created by media, the lies they were up against seemed inhumane- and we hope many officers did “look up” to identify that another authority was truly in control.
Surrender doesn’t seem normal to officers, they weren’t trained that way, they’re more likely prompted to never give in and NEVER give up control.
But, you will never be stronger than when you hand your authority over to THE ONE GOD who truly knows you- can instruct you - can transform you - and can deliver you when you surrender.
You say, “If only people would just respect us and follow our orders, we are really here for their safety and most of the time we know what’s best.” In a similar sense, God says, “If only people would just be obedient, I can save them because I know whats best.”
In 2 Chronicles 7:14, scripture says, “...if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
Can you see the common thread? You have a desire to be a peacemaker and God is the perfect PEACEMAKER.
Ultimately, He leaves you to choose. Keep looking up - Officer and Spouse - for He has amazing plans for you.
We continue to pray into the law enforcement community, for surrender, for life, for peace, for health and for safety. We are with you and for you.
